I’ve started another book. I’m now reading “The Bell Curve” by the boys listed above.
Stats that struck me tonight:
Think of your twelve closest friends or colleagues. For most readers of this book, a large majority of them will be college graduates. Does it surprise you to learn that the odds of having even half of them be college graduates are only six in a thousand, if people are randomly paired off? Many of you will not think it odd half or more of the dozen have advanced degrees. But the odds against finding such a result among a randomly chosen group of twelve Americans are actually more than a million to one.
I am going to love this book!
